Three people were taken to area hospitals in serious-to-critical condition and roughly a dozen people were transported in fair-to-serious condition following the crash,


CTA said it is too early in their investigation to determine what happened, but passengers have already started to speculate about how and why the driver lost control.

"We didn't know that up front someone was holding onto the wheel with her, to help her, but apparently it locked," Henry said.

"She was pressing the brakes, the bus driver, and the bus wouldn't stop," said passenger Sirseal Gibson, whose mother was hurt in the accident.

You can be sure there were more people on the bus after the crash, than where on it when the bus crashed being it happened on the south side of Chicago LOL.
